S. Leone :Pregnant pupils to be ejected from exams hall
In Sierra Leone, the West African Examination Council (WAEC) has launched an operation to weed out all female students found pregnant in examination hall.
Exactly what method the WAEC authorities intend to enforce this in the upcoming 2012 West African seniors certificate exams remains to be seen.
But that the pronouncement came few days to the start of the exams, but the education authorities are trying to prevent a repeat of last the 2011 scenario, when pregnant students sat the exams.
‘’Last year’s embarrassment during the senior certificate examination will not be entertained this year as the West African examination council has put a stop forthwith,’’ a press release from the exams council said.
WADR’s Freetown Correspondent Mohamed Konneh has the details in this report.
